Introduction of AWS Step Functions at re:Invent 2016

foodpanda was featured at AWS re:invent 2016 in Las Vegas during the introduction of AWS Step Functions.

This makes us of course a little proud, while I also have to say we are not using AWS Step Functions in any production application. As a heavy AWS Simple Workflow user we got early Beta access and evaluated the technology regarding its potential to replace the existing solution. So far we clearly decided to stay with SWF, but will nevertheless follow the technologies progress closely and update this page with a detailed comparison eventually.

foodpanda coverage starts at around 13 minutes:
